The Apollo Theatre has three tiers with the cheapest seats being located in the upper circle and the most expensive being front and centre in either the stalls or dress circle. While this is not the largest venue in the West End, it still has several different price structures in all sections of the theatre meaning that when looking for the best value for tickets to Everybody's Talking about Jamie it can be beneficial to study the seating plan closely to look for the cut off points for each different price range in the theatre which can lead to substantial savings.
The producers rarely offer official discounts on tickets to Everybody's Talking About Jamie however prices do fluctuate and midweek performances during off peak periods will usually see a downward movement for ticket prices to the show. Some of the official retail outlets will offer discounts during quiet weeks if they buy in bulk upfront but this will usually only happen if the West End is quiet and is more luck than judgement from a consumer perspective.
They can be. It is recommended that you study the seating plan before booking as there are some seats in this section that feature slight restrictions to the view however this should be clearly marked for full transparency and priced accordingly. Thankfully there are no pillars to deal with so most of the tickets to Jamie in this section do have a clear view although you are situated quite high up.
As with all West End shows, this boils down to basic supply and demand as the producers are in business to make money and if the show is busy they will charge all agents full price for tickets meaning that the online ticket agents running the websites will have no option but to charge a booking fee to turn a profit. The good news though is that if you are booking tickets to Everybody's Talking About Jamie through websites that are members of the Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers (STAR) then all fees should be clearly visible prior to purchase so you will be aware of exactly what you are getting into and there are no nasty surprises upon checkout.
